Question Help in assembling tamiya kit

I recently bought a Tamiya Kit for Subaru Impreza , spent the weekend assembling it but just got the suspension only.
This is my first assembling job. Can you guys help me with following?
On the instructions they have mentioned some Cement to glue plastic parts. Where can i get thsi cement in India?
Which is a good tool set for such assembly jobs i can get locally?
I intend to get Tamiya tool set later.
Thanks in advance,
Naveen

Fevi Quick will act as your cement...available in any local shop. BE CAREFUL with it.

Why do you need a tool kit for a kit car?? get a plastic cutter (also available in any hardware store) and a craft knife. that's it.

Go for a local Cyano Adhesive, they are the best. Any hobby store or stationary store will have it. Model plane builders and Architetural model builders use that frequently. I am also using the same for my Revell kits, that I am bulding.

The good thing for these is teys have a tad slower setting time than Feviquick, which gives us good time to place the component correctly and also gives a good shelf life of the product. And is huge cost effective.

No, these are not available in Bangalore . And not any where in India. You have to get them from "Phoren" i.e. Abroad

Pics, 240Z and 350Z. No news on the New Mercs from Maisto. Hope to get the SLS and the SL AMGs before I leave, but seems highly unlikely.
